[resolved] index.php not displaying default theme after local insallation (3 posts)

    Hi all,

    First time poster here.

    I am trying to get WordPress up and running locally on my PC.
    I have both IIS (port 80) and Apache (port 81) running. WordPress is installed under a folder named 'Blog' in the root 'htdocs' of Apache.

    I appear to have installed WordPress, because i get to see the dashboard and other configuration tools, when i navigate to the following:
    http://localhost:81/blog/wp-admin/index.php

    Under users i can see the user that i have created for MySQL, so that side of things appears to be ok.

    But all i can see when i navigate to the site's home page (index.php) is a list of all my site's files.
    http://localhost:81/blog/index.php

    I was expecting to see the default theme presented on the home page.

    What am i doing wrong?

    Thanks.

    I just made a test post on my blog, so that side of it appears to be ok.

    Installed components via XAMPP instead of individually. A configuration problem solved by automation i guess. Now up and running
